Roger Melis [1940—2009] not only photographed workers in the GDR and their everyday lives, but also created a series of expressive portraits of writers such as Anna Seghers, Christa Wolf, and Heiner Müller. He knew how to »wait until the gaze went into the open, the person became visible, he was with himself and showed himself.« [Christoph Hein, 2007] He also photographed Thomas Brasch several times over the years. These portraits selected by Mathias Bertram can be seen in the exclusive exhibition (09.09. - 18.09.2021).
Open daily during box office hours.
